Subject: Re: Mica Film
Hello Mitch, I wrote the original article on Micafilm hinging - http://www.rcarticles.9f.com/. A lot of what you see on the group site is at least 6 years old. Unfortunately Coverite no longer makes Micafilm. It was available for many years but fell out of favor three or four years back. I still have a small quantity for myself to use for hinges, but the only hope you have of getting some is RC flea markets or maybe a hobby shop that has old stock. If you are a member of an RC club, you might ask some of the older members. One might have some in his old-covering bin. I don't know what you could use as a replacement for hinges.
